Collaboration with smarter hearing

Together with Cochlear, the global leader in implantable hearing solutions, we have a collaboration called the Smart Hearing Alliance.

What's a bimodal hearing solution?

Hearing aids and cochlear implants working together

A bimodal hearing solution is when you have a cochlear implant on one ear and a hearing aid on the opposite ear. 

It has been repeatedly demonstrated that users who have a cochlear implant on one ear can find great benefits from wearing a hearing aid on the other ear. Benefits discovered are:

  • Superior sound quality
  • Sound source localization (Spatial sense)
  • Speech recognition in noise
  • Music appreciation

What's smart hearing alliance?

ReSound and Cochlear are collaborating in the Smart Hearing Alliance, offering a smart bimodal hearing solution with direct simultaneous streaming from compatible iOS and Android devices. With our smart bimodal hearing solution, the ReSound hearing aid and Cochlear implant work together seamlessly.
